Daniel Ortega took advantage of the celebrations for the birth of Augusto César Sandino to lash out in Managua against the Summit of the Americas, which is held in June in Los Angeles. “I tell the Yankee, forget it, we are not interested in going to that summit. Going to that summit is going to fill up, we already know what. That summit does not exalt anyone, rather it dirty, muddy,” cried the Sandinista leader, who He also called on all Latin Americans to defend themselves against the “Empire.”

The United States, host of the Summit of the Americas, has advanced that it does not have the three dictatorships of the continent (Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua) for the continental conclave, which caused the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to become in defender of the three revolutions. And he has done it so firmly that he has already announced that he will not go to Los Angeles, although Mexico will be represented by its foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard.

The leaders of Cuba and Venezuela had previously shown their anger at the decision of the Joe Biden administration. In Managua, things in the palace go more slowly. “We understand the concern, the attitudes of the governments, of Latin American presidents who have been questioning and we recognize their brave attitude. They have questioned the fact that the Yankees are marginalizing Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua,” added the Sandinista leader, re-elected in November. spent at the head of the country thanks to fraudulent elections that were not recognized by the international community. Ortega keeps seven opposition candidates imprisoned for those same elections.

López Obrador’s initiative has the full support of the Bolivian president, Luis Arce, who will not attend the conclave either, as well as the Honduran leftist Xiomara Castro, despite the recent extradition to the US of his predecessor, Juan Orlando Hernández.

The governments of Argentina and Chile have also shown their annoyance at the exclusion of the three revolutions, but for now it seems that they will attend the meeting. The small islands of the Caribbean, gathered around Caricom, are also expressing their doubts about traveling to Los Angeles. Just a few days ago, Nicolás Maduro canceled the debt that several of these countries had with Caracas.

Other countries have also joined in the fight against Biden, but for different reasons. Both Brazil, El Salvador and Guatemala threaten to absent themselves from a meeting that has put the Democratic government uphill. The two Central Americans are in Biden’s sights for his authoritarian tics while Jair Bolsonaro, the far-right president of the South American giant, shows his doubts: “We are still only studying it, it depends on many things.”

“The show that the Yankee rulers are giving is a shame,” concluded Ortega, who would hardly have gone to the United States if he had been invited. Against the Nicaraguan dictator weighs a resolution of the Organization of American States (OAS) that declares him an international criminal. Maduro, too, would have obvious problems if he could appear in California, since the $15 million bounty on his “head” is still in place. They accuse him of drug terrorism.
